3 SUVs Best Suited to the Lifestyles of Young Professionals
Toyota RAV4 - For Today's Go-Getters
North America's premiere compact SUV tops the list. The RAV4 whisks you away to the office or client breakfast in the AM, allows you to run those midday errands without a wasted minute, and will take you on your evening escapades and weekend adventures with ease.
Stylish from the get-go, the aerodynamic 2016 RAV4 has been updated on the exterior to include a bold new front end, a newly fashioned rear fascia, a sleek (if not sexy) exterior and stylish new wheels. If you opt for the available integrated fog lights and enhanced LED lighting you further accentuate your road and curb appeal. Modern professionals also place a premium on technology, which is why you'll rave about the RAV4's standard 6.1-inch touch-screen, Multi-Information Display, available Smart Key fob, SiriusXM radio, Bluetooth voice recognition, and depending on your model you'll have up to 11 JBL speakers complete with a subwoofer and amp. Weekend (and evening) warriors will also appreciate the RAV4 for its interior space and convenience, with a height-adjustable power lift-gate and reclining second row seats that open up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo room.
The RAV4 drives like a dream while remaining economical. A big part of what makes the RAV4 well known for its acceleration and fuel economy is its 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with built-in intelligence that optimizes engine power output while adjusting to your driving habits. The RAV4 comes with an ECO-mode and SPORT-mode to further suit your demand for economy and efficiency. Toyota also knows that as a contemporary professional you care deeply about your environment. Thankfully you no longer have to worry about driving an SUV and releasing more than your share of carbon emissions. The 2016 RAV4 Hybrid has been released. View more on the 2016 RAV4 or RAV4 Hybrid.
Toyota Highlander - For the Power Couples' Today and Tomorrow
The Toyota Highlander is perfect for power couples. A tag team of young professionals is ready to tackle the world, and there is no better SUV to accomplish this task than the Highlander. Built for today and tomorrow, this SUV understands the demands of your life. Aesthetically, you won't find a more luxurious yet accommodating full-size SUV. Tough yet sleek on the exterior, the Highlander gets noticed on the road and on the lot - something that is important to image-aware professionals. The interior pays close attention to the most minuscule, right down to the available genuine-thread accent seat stitching that adds a touch of class. The small details also make the Highlander a treat for those that demand convenience from every nook and cranny of their lives. The Highlander's smart storage compartments for instance, allow you and passengers immediate access to "most needed" items. At no point will a mobile device, charger, compact mirror or protein bar be out of reach on your journey. Transitioning in and out of expansive cargo space is also a breeze, with the height-adjustable power lift-gate and flip-up rear glass window. Whether you need to load up corporate presentation materials today, or car seats and strollers tomorrow, the Highlander can accommodate it all.
The interior is outfitted with sound-dampening insulation for those moments when you need to focus. The available 8-inch touch-screen display with integrated navigation makes that focus that much easier. Passengers, be they grown-ups or tots, will enjoy the available rear-seat DVD or Blu-ray entertainment system with a 9-inch display, RCA jacks, a remote and two sets of wireless headphones.
If getting away from the corporate grind is essential to your existence, then the Highlander with its rating as a top towing vehicle will allow you and yours (available seating up to eight) to pack it all up and hit the road when your hearts desire. The available V6 engine, 270 horsepower and EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway (on FWD) makes such a prospect very reasonable indeed. The Highlander is also a part of Toyota's 2016 eco-friendly line-up.

Toyota 4Runner - For Those that Live Beyond the Boardroom
The Toyota 4Runner has ruled the road and off-road for three long decades. Those that work hard and play harder (outdoors) know that there is no other SUV that will perform quite the same as the 4Runner. Toyota understands that your day is not constrained to 9 to 5 from Monday to Friday. Instead, they're well aware that your lifestyle begins outside of this box. With V6, reinforced body-on-frame construction, independent double-wishbone front 4-link and coil-spring rear suspension you're provided the power and strength to leave the office in the dust when the weekend comes. Whether camping, fishing, or hunting down a secret surf spot on BC's coastline this SUV's locking rear differential, multi-terrain select, and crawl control will remove all obstacles in your path.
Daring lifestyle aside, Toyota gets the fact that you need to remain connected on your frequent off-the-grid expeditions, which is why the 4Runner's technology set is made for you. Inside you'll find a 6.1 inch high-res touch-screen display, Siri Eyes-Free, a CD player with MP3/WMA playback, eight JBL speakers, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, auxiliary audio jack, USB port w/iPod connectivity/control, smartphone contact list access, advanced voice recognition, Bluetooth wireless technology and hands-free phone capability. While you hope to never have to take the boardroom with you, sometimes that's the only way you get to escape in the first place. We get it. View more on the 2016 4Runner.
